Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: One of the best LIG and Scarlet>Fire you never heard: 10/19/81 Barcelona

1981 was such an underrated year in general, and both LIG and SCARLET>FIRE were probably the 2 standouts of that year. Thanks for adding this gem to the file, Liam.

For another great LIG I humbly submit 5/1/81

(AUD better than the SBD, a rarity)

and for a SCARLET>FIRE that goes places many others fear to tread check out 9/25/81, Lehigh Univ.

The transition to Fire and the FIRE itself are amazing (forgive Jerry the one lyric screw up in verse one) and the SCARLET is no slouch either--tremendous Brent contributions, esp. on vocals.
